Done in a Jiffy

Jiffy : A short amount of time; moment (defined by Dictionary.com)

  1.  I usually hear people say “[insert task] done in a jiffy”. Are there other ways to use this word on a daily basis? Like phrases that we use everyday. Please comment and lemme know 🙂
  2. When I’m at work, I tend to be much more efficient. Things are done in a jiffy. Tasks like booking an emergency patient would be done in 5 min or clearing up my boss’s schedule would be done maybe in the hour if things go well. Simple morning tasks like emails or doing weekly deposits would be done in a jiffy.
  3. When I’m at home, I can’t seem to motivate myself to do things a short amount of time. Like folding clothes or putting in new bedsheets can be done in a jiffy. But I always seem to find a reason to procrastinate and just not do it until its absolutely needed. Is it just me? Or is this a normal thing?

Just a bit of rambles before I continue my studies 🙂 Have a lovely day where ever you are.

Organize thoughts

Maybe its just me. I always need something/ someone to help me organize the chaos of thoughts in my head.

When I need something to organize my thoughts, its usually related to school or things thats on my to do list. In my mind, that list seems really long and jumbled. But when I write it out, its actually a relatively short list. Why? because in my unorganized cloud of thoughts, the list has a lot of repeats. Hence, when organized the list is really short.

When I need someone to organize my thoughts, its usually related to life problems (i.e family things, problems etc.) They usually hear my unorganized thoughts in a massive ramble. They pick up the important points. And then organize it in a list for me. Again, what may seemed a lot things to organize isn’t very long. But having friends to organize my thoughts sometimes helps me see things differently. New ways and perspectives that I didn’t think of before.

Sometimes what may seem a lot isn’t actually a lot. Don’t be afraid to ask a friend for help when things seem overwhelming. Real friends won’t mind helping you organize your thoughts. Of course, you shouldn’t/wouldn’t mind to the same either. Because that’s what friends are for 🙂

Partner

I wasn’t going to post on it , but a thought just came 🙂

The word partner can be associated with many things like: Partner in crime (not illegal ones), Partner in a team, Partner in a game, or the more obvious one, a partner in a romantic relationship .

I think in each meaning theres one common thing – Partnership requires a certain amount of effort, trust and communication.

For me, I think part of how a partnership works is recognizing that each individual in the duo/trio/group will continuously grow. And all sides have to know that. And of course to encourage this growth . I think it as : growing stronger not just for the relationship but also for yourself. If we don’t see or realize that people grow, we may not recognize each other and things start to go down hill.

I guess I’m trying to say is that, take some time to stop and get to know your partner(s) of any type a little more 🙂

Rambles · The Paddling Life

Place

(If you’re gonna say something bad or judge me  and comment about it. Please don’t . I really can’t deal with it right now.)

Have you ever had those days where nothing feels right? Where your bubble is burst? Where somewhere that may seem so happy and bright suddenly seems dark and depressing?  Thats where I am right now.

I live a very privileged and sheltered life. Parents took care of almost everything. Had nothing to worry about. I become complacent. I never sought for more or to learn more. I stood still.

It was even more evident after  I came back from my London trip. My drive to move up in the society ladder burned out. My motivation to improve fell short. Everything just stopped.

My current place in life can be summarized by 3 things: school, work , and dragon boat. School started immediately after my trip. So I spend work hours either studying or dealing with work related duties. As for training, I dropped a good 2/3 of the required workouts.  I kept up with team practice as much as possible, to keep up with the social side of life. School, work, dragonboat, and repeat. thats my life.  But as time went on, I grew comfortable with where I’m am. But that’s my current place in life right now in a nutshell . This is where I am at. This is where I’m stuck.

As the world moves continues to forward, I somehow just stopped moving. I stayed at my place. As a generally a happy looking person, for the longest time, I’ve been stuck in a place that’s not so happy.

(Unrelated: Dragon Zone felt like home to me. A place where I knew I would always welcomed It was a place where I felt safe to be me. It was my happy place. Whenever I have bad day or not happy, I would just take out an outrigger canoe for one and just go out. Go as along as my arms and body can take. When I need a break, I just stop. I close my eyes and let myself breathe in the fresh air.  Embrace the place around me. A place where judgement does exist, but only to motivate others to improve. A place where real friends are made. A place where friends become family. After I was done, my mind would always be in a better place)

Again, if you decided to not read my first couple lines , please don’t comment anything bad, unless its advice cuz I do need it. But, this is my place, where I am free to write my thoughts and feelings out.
